Grew up on a farm in rural New Zealand, with a childhood barefoot, wild and free. In part my photographic work pulls from my childhood freedoms and adventures that still exist so strongly in my mind. Today we live on a small block of land where I strive to replicate this childhood for my children… it is here in our wild and wonderful surroundings that I endeavor to tell their story .. Life as it is.

Boon’s current project was born form the desire to document her family’s days as they pursue an alternative education and lifestyle with their children in a rural environment.
